of the deficit. they accuse mr. obama of being more focused on warning about the impact of the sequester than negotiating to avoid it. today outgoing transportation secretary ray la hood warned airport security lines will stretch out, flies will be cancelled, some airport towers will be closed if the faa has to keep up the current level of safety. la hood, who is a republican, called out his own party members to take a page from lincoln. >> this requires republicans stepping forward with ideas how to keep essential services of government run. this is not rocket science. this is people coming together, the way that other congresses have done, to solve big issues. reporter: house republicans say they appealed the sequester replacement in may. the white house hopes the senate will pass the bill next week, but it's up likely the house will go long given the president's demand that tax rev few be part of the been fixing the deficit. many say, quote, obama has time for everyone and everything except those that count in order to avert the sequester. the president is going to new port new york virgin
from president obama the last few days and we've seen from house republicans, which is setting the stakes, saying this is a real thing, this is a problem that the american people should pay attention, and making clear who -- that the other guy is to blame for it. it seems to me that the political positioning is now under underway. the policy debate, if they ever were started, andrea, is over. now, look, the president understands. let's just call it for what it is. talking to mitch mcconnell and john boehner. 24, 48 hours ago. ten days before -- eight days before the sequester hits. it seems unlikely that this is more than just sort of a gesture. i think most of this is about the political positioning for march 2nd and beyond, and also the policy debate that's going to go on there which is who has the upper hand? we expect something will get done between march 1st and march 31st? who has the upper hand? what does that deal look like? heats what we're debating now. >> mark, after march 1st, who blinks first? sfwla well, you know, as chris says, we're all assuming that they'll get
